Aloe is also mentioned in the Bible several times and was employed as an embalming ingredient. In the 10th century Aloe’s uses were described by Arab physicians, and aloe was introduced to Europe and listed in Anglo Saxon medical texts.Records from the 17th century show that Britain’s East India Company purchased and traded aloe from Socotra and Zanzibar.
